July 14 Erin Keane,
Light is Elastic: Encaustic Wax and Photography
Artist talk and demo, 3pm
Erin works primarily with photography and encaustic beeswax. Through her camera, she collects the beautiful colors and textures of daily life. When she takes photographs, even highly abstracted ones, they hold powerful memories of when, where, and why. Erin is especially interested in the elasticity of light as it dances around shadow and reflection. Capturing light is sometimes ethereal and sometimes edgy. It is intriguing how the camera lens “sees” differently than the eye.
The Gallery at Flat Rock is proud to present Marsha Hammel, a Hendersonville-based painter whose colorful canvases depicting musicians, singers and dancers have been exhibited nationally and internationally.
